Polaralum for Roofs

What is Polaralum for Roofs?

Polaralum for roofs is an underlayment thermal barrier that is used in roofing to prevent heat build-up in the attic by reflecting the sun’s radiant energy. It is made of lightweight, non-woven polyester with aluminum foil, UV resistant, and is highly durable. Polaralum for roofs can be applied to supporting structures behind stucco walls, lightweight concrete, flat roof surfaces, under hot tar as well as cold tar applications, metal, clay tile, shingles, and various other roofing application products. Polaralum for roofs has a proven record of over 25 years and is now available for nationwide distribution.

How does Polaralum compare to traditional insulation?

Traditional insulation, on the other hand, is designed to slow down the transfer of heat between the inside and outside of a building. It is typically made of materials such as fiberglass, cellulose, or foam and is installed in the walls, floors, and ceilings of a building. polaralum-for-roofsWhile both Polaralum and traditional insulation can help to reduce energy costs and improve the energy efficiency of a building, they work in different ways. Polaralum for roofs reflects the sun’s radiant energy, while traditional insulation slows down the transfer of heat. The choice between the two will depend on the specific needs of the building and the preferences of the homeowner.

How Does the Polaralum Barrier Work?

Radiant heat is generated by the sun and is the primary source of radiant energy. It heats the exterior of your home and this heat eventually is introduced into the interior of your home. The Polaralum thermal barrier benefits your home by keeping it cooler by reflecting the sun’s radiant energy. This helps prevent heat build-up in your attic.

Polaralum thermal barrier is an underlayment that goes on top of the deck and underneath the shingles. It is also slip-resistant and won’t tear. Another benefit is that Polaralum thermal barrier is impact-resistant to hail so it does not need to be removed if a storm destroys your new roof. Your investment will be covered with either a 15# or 30# traditional felt.


Polaralum thermal barrier benefits with proper attic ventilation is the most effective way to save money.
